“On Christmas morning, families everywhere rushed downstairs to find hoverboards, Apple Watches and Star Wars toys under the tree,” dailymail.co.uk reports. But not many can say Santa left them a custom-made, pink anti-tank rifle, bedazzled in shiny jewels.” Anti-tank? The gun in question [after the jump] looks like a .50 cal, but I’m not sure that would be my first choice to take out an T-90. Anyway, the anti-gun rights Daily Mail is shocked – shocked I tell you! – that Americans celebrated Yule with new guns. That said, this is all they said . . .
Obviously, the politics concerning gun ownership and how the U.S. Second Amendment fits into today’s society is a highly debated topic.
So, while you know the images were posted to offend British readers – assuming they ran the same feature on the UK site – I think we have to log this as a win for American gun rights. While I can hear the Brits shaking their heads, I bet more than a few would trade places with their American counterparts in a New York minute. And rightly so.
